Review how and why heating and cooling systems influence energy savings.

 

With energy savings follows reductions on the utility bill. The state of Missouri is taking progressive measures to jumpstart the dependence of alternative energy. During 2010, the U.S. Department of Energy, launched a project to evaluate the country’s geothermal energy resources, and the state of Missouri received $300,000 grant. Meanwhile, ENERGY STAR qualified gas furnaces, geothermal heating and cooling systems, and programmable thermostats are cost effective energy saving devices to reduce heating and cooling costs. St. Louis, geothermal and heating cooling company, Hoffmann Brothers, discloses how heating and cooling checkups affect energy saving and reduce utility costs.

 

An inoperable gas burner or connection attributes to respiratory hazards and can be fatal enough to start a conflagration. For safety-purposes, have the heating system evaluated annually to prevent a fire and carbon monoxide poisoning. Even without any noxious elements, a faulty gas connection or burner triggers impetuous surges on the utility bill.

 

Bi-annual heating and cooling checkups –reduce the need to make major appliance replacements (furnace, air conditioning, etc), but also ensure energy saving.

 

Regular heating and cooling evaluations are critical for alleviating the chances of a hazardous situation. A heating and cooling expert evaluates the furnace and air conditioner for safety. The contractor also examines connections, which can lead to moisture damage and improper burner functionality.

 

In terms of overall energy savings, geothermal heating and cooling systems reign high on the list of alternative energy resources. If you’re considering switching from conventional heating and cooling to a geothermal heating and cooling system, be sure to hire a reputable company with expertise in both systems.

 

How to select a geothermal heating company:

The geothermal heating and cooling company should provide a current certificate of insurance with a minimum of $ 1million of general liability. Also, the company should be LEED certified. In the event of a mishap, it covers the homeowner’s liability. (Avoid any heating and cooling contractor that charges a fee for the estimate.)

 

 

A cracked heat exchanger interrupts the burner from functioning smoothly, overloading the furnace. (Quite counterproductive for energy saving).
